Pete Pittman, a mechanical engineer specializing in weapons systems, components testing production and design, describes a new centrifuge, which is one of several environmental test capabilities used on weapons systems and components in the Weapons Test Engineering Group.

Currently, these modernizations are directed at the B61 and the W88 programs. This role demands expertise in design, engineering, fabrication and testing of multiple components using state-of-the-art computational simulation tools and engineering test facilities.

The Division works closely with several of the production facilities across the nuclear security complex, as well as with customers in the U.S. Navy and US Air Force.

The Division is also tasked with anticipating a broad range of possible future modernizations and with developing the various technology advances that might be required.
